I am teaming up with Dionna of Code Name: Mama and Jen of The Dinoia Family for a four part series in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Today, Dionna is writing about “how to help a parent who is undergoing cancer treatment.” Please stop by to both get ideas on how to help someone you love who is struggling with a serious illness, and leave your own suggestions of how people can help. And come back all week for more: on Tuesday, I am writing about how to talk to young children about cancer; on Wednesday, Jen is writing about what to say (and what not to say) to those who are newly diagnosed with cancer; and on Thursday, revisit Code Name: Mama for an interview with the Executive Direction of Cleaning for a Reason.
